What is bitcoin?


I just heard of this a few days ago. Is anyone familiar with its function, purpose, use, and risks?

    Wow, Rachael, you should just go ahead and do a hub on this while it's hot with the bankruptcy and all. Thank you very much for your answer.

    Google bitcoin to learn what they were used for and then Google Mt. Gox to learn about the hack that caused them to go bankrupt. My son was heavily into using Bitcoins and considered being a miner. I'm thankful he didn't invest in the hardware setup.
